does anyone know if i am able to get refund for this gb or if anyone is willing to take my spot?
 lol im upset on how they are handling group buys, where people are handing their money first-hand and trusting that they would send their product. I t blows my mind that all the updates these past few weeks or months has been posted none other than a mere gb-participant. dont think i would be purchasing/participating anything from zfrontier anymore. :blank:

chillax. There’s been delays, just like almost every other gb we’ve ever had. Patience is necessary in this hobby.

delays are ok if they are communicated properly.
but what the guys are doing here is definitely not cool.

I mean just take a look at the HB85 GB.
Regular updates with pictures and everything directly from the GB starter.
Here we literally have to squeeze every little bit of information out of the responsible persons...  :blank:

perhaps their next reply would be that the Chinese New Year holidays are coming and that's causing another delay. bummer.

I know delays are super annoying, but personally, I feel like I've waited longer to get in on this buy than it's been running, so I'm don't mind waiting. It also helps that this GB is run by respectable names in the community, so I'm not worried I'm being scammed or whatever. And I've also had some practice with the m65a last year  :blank:

the problem is not that we are afraid if we are gonna get scammed, but rather mad at how they are handling communication or updates. their initial shipping date was during around middle of december but til now, they had never updated or communicated officially.

Hi guys, sorry for the delayed update, Alex told me he just got back from a business trip. Latest news is EVE is doing final QC before shipping, this was last week. Alex messaged him again this morning for another update and he's still waiting for a reply. He will ask for some photos when EVE gets back to him so hopefully EVE can respond quickly and provide photos next.

Wondering if the boards being shipped are all of them or just the WKL specific colours that were mentioned?

Seeing as there was talk about manufacturing, I sincerely hope it's all models (especially because I ordered a WK one :p )

You are aware that Chinese New Year is from Feb 5th right? a lot of people are going to try order things from china before that, have a feeling that you can't ship em before since i heard from couple of my friends who had participated in different group buys on zfrontier which were held before kira tkl GB and they still haven't received it yet.... like c'mon, if you can't even handle single groupbuy properly, it's not smart to just keep adding new groupbuys followed by groupbuys.... feel like zfontier is very overloaded recently

1) If EVE didnt start shipping the boards to zfrontier until this week, how is that zfrontier's fault?

2) Just because a GB that happened before Kira has been delayed, doesnt mean Kira will be. Different GBs have different manufacturers and lead times, ect.

3) Thesis isnt running this GB, he's just the designer and he's doing everything he can to keep us informed. Give him a break.

We'll get the boards when we get them. This isnt the first time in history of GBs that the expected shipping date wasn't met.

Updates are sparse and I agree they should be more frequent, but zFrontier isn't holding back shipment just to spite everyone, and I believe they're trying to get this done as soon as possible. I don't think they have received the shipment yet, I will give an update as soon as I can.

I guess you are right on number 1. but can't agree with number 2. tho since its not the first they theyve done this, it has happened previously for zfrontier where their earlier gbs were delayed, then followed by the gbs after that has been delayed like domino
